Airfix 1/24 Hurricane Mk.I

Post by DerekF »

One that I've just completed this past week. The Airfix 1/24 Hurricane is quite an old kit but actually isn't too bad. The fit is pretty decent with the exceptions being the getting the fuselage halves together and getting the wings to fit. Nothing major then... I added a Yahu photetched instrument panel and an HGW Sutton harness. The model is finished in Hataka/ Vallejo Acrylics dark earth, dark green and sky and using Topnotch camouflage masks which worked very well. The aircraft is in the markings of P3576 GN-A as flown by Flight Lieutenant James Brindley Nicolson VC, RAF No.249 Squadron, Boscombe Down, 16th August 1940. The roundels, serial numbers and codes were also applied using Topnotchmasks and sprayed on. It was a new technique for me and I think it worked out OK. Anyway, here it is.

Very nice job and those masks look to have been very effective.
